Iron and Glory from Brooklyn takes pride in making these bottle stoppers right in their studio in New York.  Hand casted from a 3D printed design, they have amazing detail and nice weight.  Perfect to show off on your home bar cart, or seal that little bit of wine left over from dinner, (if you have that problem). The Frenchie and the Skull are now in the shop.

Finnish design company Magisso has a knack for adding a bit of extra oomph to the items we use every day.  New to the store, their collection of self-cooling ceramics, are designed to stay cool for hours after simply running water over their porous exterior.  You can also treat them as a canvas for personalization simply by using chalk.  We currently carry the Carafe and Wine Chiller, (pictured), as well as the Ice Bucket and of course, Dog Bowls.  After all, why should Fido have warm water on a hot summer day? 

Another round, please!

Death & Co is an integral part of New York's cocktail culture, so it is fitting that the owners of the bar decided to put all they know into a cocktail encyclopedia of the same name.  This bartending classic, with its fabric covered book jacket, coloured photographs and 100's of recipes, is perfect for both craft cocktail enthusiasts and professional mixologists. Every bar needs this beauty. 

Drink up, old man.

Drink like a real man - a real old man - with the recipes, and advice given in this great gift book.  Boilermakers, Rusty Nails, and Sidecar recipes can be found among the pages.  You will not find anything requiring an umbrella, or resulting in the slightest shade of pink.  We're talking Whiskey, Rye, Bourbon and Gin.  Bottoms up!

Nice Cubes.

Nice Cubes.

Keep your libations chilled to the max with 2" ice cubes.  These great silicone moulds are large enough to addjuices and fruit pieces to amp up your cocktail game.  If you are traditionalist and stick to using just water, you can take comfort in knowing they also last longer due to the larger size.  Bottoms up!

A Field Guide to Canadian Cocktails is a collection of over 100 recipes inspired by local and home grown ingredients and spirits.  From the Yukon, to New Brunswick, there are updated classics as well as signature drinks from Canada's top bartenders and the authors own creations.  Beautiful photographs accompany each recipe so you know exactly what you are about to concoct, and what the finished product should look like.  It's proudly Canadian and we are too.

Ingrained Woods cutting and serving boards are hand-made right here in Calgary, and are equal parts beautiful and functional.  Made out of select exotic woods in varying sizes these boards make great host/hostess gifts, as well as a great gift for the home bartender or Iron Chef.  Happy chopping.
